    Strava

    Discovered this ap from reading this fowum. Downloaded it and used it on my morning ride. Confirmed what I already knew, yep, I'm slow. Pretty neat not having to guess distance though. I'm glad it was free! Because now I think I need a HRM!

    Soooo many to choose from though.

    Strava is cool. I hold KOM records on several obscure segments that people never ride. If you tell them you're a six year-old girl, your KOM status is likely to be secure for awhile. I think I like Strava better than Garmin Connect.

    So very true. I got a KOM and held it for a week because most of the young Guns didn't see it for a week. The only thing I had to do was buy a battery extender because of how Iphone eats batteries under full gps. But it was only 40 bucks for an extender that will give me 8 extra hours. Plus I can check up on you when I want.

    I have an iPhone but don't use it for recording rides. I offload to Strava from my Garmin device. Different ways to use Strava...

    I DO use my iPhone with Strava to view my ride stats sometime.
